Merger to create more Atlanta distribution jobs?

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

The merger of two companies could possibly create more Atlanta distribution jobs.

xpedx, a business of International Paper, and Unisource Worldwide, Inc. are merging and have chosen the name Veritiv for their newly combined company.

The name Veritiv comes from the roots of three words: “verity”, meaning true, and “active” and “connective”.

Unisource and xpedx have agreed to merge to create a North American business-to-business distribution company. The company will begin operating under the name Veritiv and will introduce its brand/logo immediately after the closing of the transaction, which is expected to occur early in the third quarter of 2014, upon satisfaction of the remaining closing conditions.

The new company will have projected annual revenue in the range of $9 to $10 billion and will have approximately 9,500 team members across more than 170 distribution centers in North America. The combination is expected to generate approximately $150 million to $225 million in annual net synergies.

Unisource Worldwide, Inc., headquartered in Norcross, Ga., helps enterprise-level companies improve bottom-line performance by providing solutions across the life cycle of core business operations, including product packaging and fulfillment, paper and print management, general supply chain and logistics, and facility supplies solutions.

Company hires for finance jobs in Atlanta

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Wellcentiv has announced it will hire for finance jobs in Atlanta.

The provider of end-to-end population health management (PHM) and transformative data analytics for healthcare organizations has hired Patrick Clark to become its next CFO.

Clark will oversee the company’s financial, administrative, business planning, human resources and legal functions.

Clark is from Vocalocity (now Vonage Business Solutions), a company that provides cloud-based communications services, where he served as CFO. During his tenure the company more than doubled its revenue over a two-year period. Clark improved Vocalocity’s profitability and partnered with the CEO on the positioning of the company, which led to a sale to Vonage Holdings Corp. in November 2013.

Prior to joining Vocalocity, Clark was Executive Vice President of Finance and CFO at The Weather Channel at the time of its more than $3 billion sale to NBC Universal, Bain Capital and The Blackstone Group in September 2008. While at The Weather Channel he managed the finance, accounting, business planning, treasury, corporate tax and real estate management functions.

The company was recently named a Leader in IDC Health Insights’ new report, “IDC MarketScape: U.S. Population Health Management 2014 Vendor Assessment.”

“Clearly, Wellcentive has performed well, cementing its position at the forefront of a strong market segment that is rapidly gaining traction,” said Clark. “As providers and payers transition from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement, a comprehensive population health management strategy will become the tipping point to achieving clinical and financial outcomes-based goals. I’m excited to join Wellcentive’s senior management team at this pivotal time in the company’s history to accelerate our success.”

“Over the past year Wellcentive has undergone rapid customer, product and business growth, and we are thrilled to have Pat join our team supporting the continued acceleration of our execution, scale and innovation,” said Tom Zajac, Wellcentive’s CEO. “Pat’s strategic and financial acumen and building of exceptionally successful media and technology businesses comes at a pivotal time in our company’s history. We look forward to leveraging his vast experience as we rapidly build value for our customers and investors.”
